And so most people will only have one without associating any deep meaning or symbolism to it as it is only meant to be a reminder of the cartoons that they used or still love watching.

The symbolism or meaning of your Disney tattoo will also depend on the particular character that you have and their traits on the movie or series.

For example, Simba from the Lion King can be a symbol of perseverance and strength while having a totem of Bambi will symbolize survival or the ability to face anything and everything that life brings your way.

Ladies prefer to have tattoos of the different Disney princesses but each of them has an almost distinct character, and this is what determines what your totem will symbolize.

If you choose to have Cinderella, your symbol can mean that there is always light at the end of the tunnel despite all the hardships or that nobody or nothing can prevent you from fulfilling your destiny.

Snow White, on the other hand, is a symbol of self-preserving and resourcefulness because she overcomes many hurdles and threats to her life and ends up getting married to a mighty prince.

The story of Ariel, on the other hand, shows that one should not give up until he or she achieves what they want in life. In short, all the princesses’ stories symbolize different types of strengths and so drawing them on your body will also represent these positive attributes.

They may not exist in real life, but they make amazing body art as they are always beautiful. You can have a colorful image of Ariel the mermaid on your upper arm or have a cute one in 3D swimming in the ocean.


There are many princess stories from Disney, and they make up some of the most famous animations because kids just love them. These female personalities are also a symbol of hope and strength, and this means that their tattoos will be very symbolic.

Placement Ideas

A Disney tattoo is just like any other type of body art, and so you can have it anywhere you feel comfortable or where you think it will be symbolic. However, you should never overlook the type and size of the totem when choosing a placement area.

Most people prefer to have theirs in a place where they can show them off easily such as the wrist, lower leg or on the lower arm, but these locations are only suitable for small ones.

Large totems that feature numerous Disney characters will look best on the back, rib cage, thigh, chest or as a full sleeve tattoo. And if you are one of those that like to draw theirs in unique places, behind the ear, knuckles and on the belly button will work for you excellently.

In Short…

You only get to be a child once and as much as you would love to relive your childhood days you cannot turn back the hands of time. But, growing up does not mean that you should forget all the things that you use to love doing such as watching Disney animations.

And so to ensure that the memories stay with you forever, a Disney tattoo is an excellent idea. You only need to choose one or a few characters from your popular series or movies and have a professional artist draw their image anywhere you want.
